Fold a piece of rectangular paper in half.
Start at the fold. Make several partial cuts. Make sure each cut stops at the same place.
Open the paper and join the shorter edges. Secure them with tape or glue.
Decorate the lantern with colorful tissue paper, paint, and magic markers.
(Materials needed: construction paper, scissors, glue, and a good imagination!)
Tear out an estimated 12 pieces of construction paper and cut them into 3 cm strips.
When that is complete, start to put the construction strips into rings and glue them. As you glue, link one ring into another to form a chain.
When all the gluing is complete get another piece of construction paper, draw a snake head, and cut it out.
When that is complete, glue the head on and enjoy!
